- When we get to heaven, we're sure to find Pastor Jack hanging with all of the worship songwriters trying to find new ways to sing songs to Jesus about his majesty, wonder, and love.
Pastor Jack, we love you and miss you and thank you for what you contributed to all of us who understand the importance of worship.
Jack Hayford is known for his emphasis on the importance of worship in the Christian life. In his sermons and teachings, he often stressed the need for a personal and intimate relationship with God through worship. He taught that worship is not just singing songs, but rather an attitude of the heart, a lifestyle of devotion, and an expression of love and adoration to God.
In his teachings, Hayford also emphasized that worship is not just a Sunday morning activity, but rather it should be a continual part of our lives. We like to say, worship is a lifestyle or building a lifestyle of worship. He encouraged believers to worship God in all aspects of their lives, including through their work, relationships, and daily activities. He also taught that true worship is based on a deep understanding of God’s character and nature, and that it is through worship that we come to know God more fully.
Hayford also stressed the importance of corporate worship, and encouraged believers to come together to worship God as a community. He taught that corporate worship is an important part of the church’s mission and that it is through corporate worship that the body of Christ is built up and strengthened.
Pastor Jack is also known for his contributions to Christian worship music. He wrote and co-wrote many popular worship songs, including Majesty, The Name of Jesus, Ancient of Days, and I Will Sing of the Mercies of the Lord. These songs have been recorded by numerous artists and have been used in churches around the world. Hayford has also produced several albums of worship music, such as Majesty Music: Worship at the Throne and The Name of Jesus: Worship at the Throne. Hayford’s musical style is a combination of contemporary Christian, gospel, and traditional hymns. We would consider him to be one of the pioneers of the modern worship music movement.
Some of his most popular songs include:
- “The Name of Jesus”
- “Ancient of Days”
- “I Will Sing of the Mercies of the Lord”
